This 13-Year-Old Romanian Basketball Player Is Already Taller Than Everybody In The NBA

Meet Robert Bobroczky, the 13-year-old Romanian basketball sensation who stands at 7’4″ and wait, is this real life? Because that doesn’t look right — at all. It looks like they put a human head on a giraffe and told it to dribble a basketball. Somebody call PETA because that’s not cool. Animal ethics aside, Robert Robroczky practices with Stella Azzurra Rome, the same...

Booker T Threw Out The First Pitch For The Astros And It Was A Strike, SUCKA!

Getty Image While boring, old cranky pants Jack White was busy throwing in the dirt for ball one at the Detroit Tigers game last night, the Houston Astros made up for their eventual 7-4 loss to the Oakland A’s by offering us the best first pitch of the 2014 MLB season thus far. Now, I don’t mean that it was the best because it involved Booker T showing up and the crew at Minute...

Why Was The Incredible Hulk At The Cubs Game Last Night?

WGN I think it’s awfully unprofessional of The Hulk to skip out on saving the world to catch foul balls at a Cubs game. Like, aren’t the Avengers waiting for him or something? Isn’t he late to some intergalactic war staged in NYC? The nerve of that guy. And then look at him, hitting on hot chicks and stuff. Bro, this isn’t Hulk-Harmony.com. You’re a goddamn superhero,...

ESPN Aired Arguably The Most Cringeworthy Bad Beat In Poker History

There are bad beats in poker and there are bad beats in a poker tourney where you buy-in for $1 million and oh God, this is so cringeworthy. Connor Drinan and Cary Katz raised and re-raised each other pre-flop during a hand at a WSOP event that featured a $1 million entry fee. When they turned over their cards, both had Aces, both had pocket rockets. A chop was inevitable, right...

WATCH: Jack White was all smiles as he threw out first pitch

Allow Whoopi Goldberg To Very Loudly Tell You When It’s Okay To Hit A Woman

Earlier today, it was announced that ESPN had suspended Stephen A. Smith from appearing on First Take for one week in the wake of his very poorly-expressed thoughts regarding Ray Rice’s two-game suspension. Obviously, it didn’t take long for people to point out the absurdity of a guy who stumbled all over his words about domestic violence being suspended for essentially half...

Everything You (And Kiefer Sutherland) Need To Know About Freddie Prinze Jr.’s Time In The WWE

YouTube In wrestling, history is mutable: feuds are forgotten at the drop of a hat, extensive storylines -all recorded and internationally broadcast-being wiped out because one character stands in the ring and says it just wasn’t so.

Genki Sudo And World Order Will Make Gorillas Buy Toyota In ‘Jungle Wakudoki’

Genki Sudo and his band, WORLD ORDER are back! Granted, they are back in a Toyota ad, but that’s of no concern to me. WORLD ORDER could put out a video advertising the “Punch Jessica Hudnall Square in the Face” corporation and I’d probably share it at least five times. Plus, the ad includes Tarzans and gorillas, which are surefire ways of making me like a video a lot more...

This Japanese Martial Arts Star Breaks Ten Blocks With Her Head And Then Cheerfully Throws First Pitch

That’s Takeda Rina in the video above, doing her best to demoralize all of the men in the area by breaking ten blocks with her head and then throwing a fairly decent first pitch. Sure, she kinda rolls the pitch in there, but at least she keeps it straight. Is this better than the Taiwainese yoga strip first pitch? Doubtful. But she did star in several movies, including one called...
